A year's worth of delicious recipes… - 18 November 2016

Blas/Taste  contains over 90 delicious family-friendly recipes and is presented bilingually. The book also includes suggestions for activities to keep the children busy, creating home-made gifts, quick ideas and making the most of ingredients from the garden.
Lisa Fearn is a Carmarthen girl and a mother of five. She established a gardening and cookery school called The Pumpkin Patch in Allt y Gog Farm in Felin-wen, Carmarthenshire. By now, she has taught thousands of children to grow and cook their own food (she's taught a few parents too).
Lisa is a columnist with the Carmarthen Journal and a regular on Radio Wales and Radio Cymru. She is also a cook on the Prynhawn Da programme on S4C. Above all, Lisa has a great interest in the social power of food.
Lisa says "I love the outdoors, gardening and cooking. So, when our youngest reached school age, I took stock of what I knew and The Pumpkin Patch became a reality  – a children's cookery and gardening school teaching them how to grow and cook their own food. Within months the school was fully booked, and I started sharing our family-friendly recipes with people.
"Blas/Taste  is full of our favourite 'go to' recipes at Allt y Gog Farm. They are the recipes that I hope my children will use when they leave home  – Mum's favourites. No fuss; easy meals and snacks that flavour the seasons and the year's celebrations with the family. So invite everybody round to taste!"

Blas/Taste  is a perfect gift this Christmas and is now available from your local bookshop.

Lisa Fearn will launch the book at Aberglasney Gardens on Wednesday, 23 November at 7pm.
